Add a Keyboard Shortcut that Executes the Statement where the Cursor is placed

Having to select statements by clicking and holding the mouse is just bad ergonomics. Request to have a keyboard shortcut which runs the current sql statement. The current sql statement is defined based on where the cursor is placed. For example, proposed shortcut runs only runs a single sql statement to the next semicolon. This shortcut would be an equivalent to Oracle's SQL developer's ctrl + enter shortcut. Note that this is probably the most used shortcut in SQL Developer and not having an equivalent on SQL Server Management Studio is disappointing. I know that not everyone ends their statements with semicolons but they can carry on manually selecting what they want to run and then pressing F5. But having a shortcut for running the current sql statement would make of a lot of SSMS users extremely happy.
